CONVOY OF HOPE Internship Program

Needs are clear all over the world: poverty, loneliness, lack of clean water, lack of purpose, hunger and a longing for something bigger than what is known. There’s a new generation with an unparalleled passion to meet those needs, to leap out of comfort zones to walk with fellow man towards hope and Truth. The Convoy of Hope Internship program stands in the intersection of the world’s need and the deep desire of man to make a difference.

So what is the Convoy of Hope Internship program? Think of a 6 week or 3 month missions trip. Combine it with some education and discipleship with an added humanitarian element like the Peace Corps and you’re approaching a description of the Convoy of Hope Internship program.

Convoy of Hope Interns launch their term with a time of training in at the Convoy of Hope headquarters in Springfield, Mo, followed by compassionate work that meets physical and spiritual needs in the United States and around the world. Whether the teams build water filtration systems to help the more than 1 billion people who lack access to an improved water source, or feed those in need in partnership with local churches, or connect with various developmental programs, needs are met. Not only is faith shown, faith is shared. As an example of what’s ahead, past interns have served in Central America, East Africa, North Asia, Eurasia, the Philippines, and all over the United States. There’s more help and hope to give.

We are looking for the team God’s preparing for future terms, and would love for you to consider joining this cause. If you would like more info on this ministry opportunity contact us with any questions you have.

The Assemblies of God Trust was launched in 2008 to help the Assemblies of God make some strategic changes. Trusting God to lead us, we set forth three major initiatives to advance a healthy, growing Assemblies of God Fellowship and empower future generations for the task of fulfilling the Great Commission. Nearly 5,000 churches, individuals and businesses are now members of the AGTrust.

The Church Multiplication Network works alongside of AGTrust to help finance new Church Plants with Matching Funds.

John and Stephanie Van Pay are just one couple with an awesome testimony of how God is using these two entities to make a difference in the San Antonio area at  Gateway Fellowship Church!

Convoy of Hope disaster response personnel are now assessing tornado damage in a number of communities in Oklahoma.

You can help with a secure online donation.

“Truckloads of relief supplies are ready to be delivered based on the assessment,” says Kary Kingsland, vice president of disaster response at Convoy of Hope.

“This has been a busy season for disaster response. The scale of earthquakes, floods and tornadoes since January has definitely taken its toll on resources,” says Kingsland.

Since January, the organization has distributed more than 9 million pounds of food, water and relief supplies to at least 1.8 million people.

Help Convoy of Hope continue to meet needs.

Upon assessing the recent flooding in Tennessee, the organization acted fast to distribute 280,000 pounds of relief to those affected by the disaster.

The last 15 years have changed our world forever,” claims Tony Whittaker, co-ordinator of Internet Evangelism Day. “Digital media are transforming the way we communicate, behave and even think. If Facebook was a country, it would have the fourth largest population in the world.” Internet Evangelism Day is a strategic resource to help the worldwide church understand these issues and use the Web to share the good news. It is both a year-round online guide and an annual focus day – to be held this year on Sunday 25 April. Churches are encouraged to use Internet Evangelism Day resources to create a presentation for their members on or near that Sunday (or at any other time they choose). The IE Day site offers free downloads: PowerPoint, video clips, handouts, drama scripts, music and posters. These enable any church (or homegroup, college, or conference) to build a customized program, lasting from five minutes to fifty. 2010’s focus day will be the sixth to be used by churches around the world since the initiative’s launch in 2005. Over this period, digital media have developed dramatically, with the advent of YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, and the growing use of mobile phones to access online services. The outreach opportunities have multiplied too. IE Day’s website is also a one-stop resource covering many subjects, including how to build a church website that is ‘outsider friendly’, using Twitter in evangelism, and blogging. Perhaps surprisingly, you do not need to be technical to share your faith online. And you can volunteer to be an email mentor to inquirers with several large online outreach ministries. Internet Evangelism Day is an initiative of the Internet Evangelism Coalition, based at the Billy Graham Center, Wheaton. It is supported by a wide range of leaders and groups. “I am glad to commend Internet Evangelism Day,” says John Stott.
